Released in Spring 2016, Skruf Slim Ralakrits White is one of two new additions (alongside Myntablad White) to the highly popular Skruf brand of snus. A snus with a touch of licorice flavor, Ralakrits is designed to have a flavor profile which puts it in between regular and flavored snus. Every can of Skruf Slim Ralakrits White comes with 24 0.7 gram regular strength portions with a total of 16.8 grams of snus. Ralakrits has its flavored ingredients added to the snus during the primary phase rather than being added afterwards which is unlike most snus brands.
Soon after I opened my can, I began to notice a mild yet familiar aroma of Skruf tobacco, and it was paired with notes of black licorice. Interestingly, Ralakrits has its flavored ingredients added to the snus during the primary phase rather than being added afterwards which is unlike most snus brands which add flavoring in later on in the manufacturing process. After putting a portion in my upper lip, I began to taste a slightly earthy and spicy tobacco flavor as well as a natural tasting black licorice. Unlike some licorice dominant brands, I found that Ralakrits’ licorice taste was more in the background and served to compliment (rather than overpower) the tobacco flavor. I usually found that the licorice taste slowly began to subside around the thirty minute mark, and the tobacco flavor became increasingly diminished a little over an hour in.
The portion material was the same used in the rest of the Skruf Slim lineup, and I found that portions fit comfortably in my lip while producing a minimal amount of drip. The portions were also quite dry, and as a result it generally took about four minutes before a full nicotine buzz began to take effect. On average I generally left my portions in for a little over an hour and didn’t experience much in the way of drip.
In summary, Skruf Slim Ralakrits White is an interesting snus which combines the traditional taste of Skruf with a subtle licorice flavor as a twist. I recommend giving Skruf Slim Ralakrits a try if you’re a fan of the taste of Skruf and are looking for something with just a hint of flavor added in!
